Expect the Unexpected
"In middle school, the frontal lobe is not developed. Heck, sometimes it seems like it's not developed for most adults! The frontal lobe is pretty much 'who you are' -- essentially the 'control panel' of your personality. During middle school, life is messy, given all the increased expectations, unknown hormonal changes, and the icing on the cake: social chaos. So don't expect perfection. Expect the perfect roller coaster ride and you won't be disappointed." -- Allison M.
